Blogger Scene Recap

You may have recalled a few weeks ago when I blew up social media about a particular event I was going to. I had been counting down the weeks to my first ever "party with a purpose," Blogger Scene. Blogger Scene was started by the ladies of The Fashionably Broke and Ashley in DC. These ladies felt that Washington, D.C. needed an outlet for bloggers from across the area to meet and share ideas. Blogger conferences can cost you north of $600 and that's just for the conference registration fees. So Natalie, Erika and Ashley created a night for bloggers, both big and small, to get together and share. 

Blogger Scene was a wonderful opportunity to meet some of the big names in the business and hear advice on how to grow my own brand. Katya with She's Unique Boutique and Spicy Candy DC was our first panelist, and she focused on how to balance life, work and a full time blog. Kara of Politics of Pretty taught us how to monetize our blogs and make some money off of our hard work.

Not only did we get the chance to hear from several experienced bloggers, we also got to meet others throughout the area. I joke all the time that I have my "blogger friends" or "twitter friends," when truthfully I haven't met in person even half of these people. I have formed many relationships via the inter-web, so it was nice to finally meet a lot of these bloggers in person.

I am already looking forward to the next "party with a purpose," but for now, check out photos from this month's event. All photos are courtesy of John Robinson Photography.

The one photo of the evening where I looked half way decent. Coming from a long day at work, left me looking a little frazzled. These are a few new bloggers in the area that I met that night.

The night was all about the purses!! There were so many colorful, yet large, totes.
